The Office of National Statistics has announced that inflation has risen by 0.3 per cent. It explained the largest upward contributions to the change in the inflation rate came from transport - notably air transport and motor fuels - and clothing.
The price of clothing and footwear also rose 1.2 percent month on month to tighten the squeeze on households, as the cost of women's outdoor clothing increased during a colder-than-normal month.
